This is the story of Nancy Richardson, Director of Student and Community Life at a major university, who was fired for qpedagogical and ideological differencesq after objecting to the school's process of hiring new faculty and demanding that more attention be paid to the University's stated desire to attract qualified women and minority faculty.In requiring a student to choose the a€œbesta€ of four or five possible answers, aptitude tests inevitably embody cultural presuppositions. In one example given by an authority in the testing field, many black children chose an a€œincorrecta€ answer to a question asking what they would do if ... of intelligence testing, and the cultural assumptions that still pervade supposedly neutral or bias-free a€œ aptitudea€ tests.
